    500px, an online photography platform akin to Flickr and Google+, launched a new platform today to help its users display, sell and print their best work on the Web.

    Previously called 500px Market, the company has rebranded this part of its business under the new domain 500pxart.com. Photographers can sell their work with 28 different options for frames, base materials, sizes and styles. 500px enables creatives to accept and process payment in over 20 currencies – and ship their work around the globe.

    500px is looking for a cut of each sale: in a blog post, the company said it will be taking a 30 percent cut of net revenue, as it did with 500px Market. The prints themselves are being produced by New Era, based in Austin.
